  1. You select which great cause you’d like to help from the menu.
  2. Click on the button associated with each cause.
  3. The click is then registered in our system of which every dollar made by the sponsored advertising shown, goes directly to that organization stated.

You essentially are changing the world with the few seconds of attention that you give to the product/brand/service being promoted. The advertiser sets aside a budget and you, by viewing the ad, operate the transfer of revenues from the advertiser’s budget to us and onto the various trusted UN agencies. #arabhelp

No money from your side (thanks to our advertisers) – only a few seconds of your time.

No, you are not required to provide any personal information to use Click to Help. We champion privacy protection in everything we do, read more here.

http-https

As safety & security is of essence for arab.org, we are proud to be one of the rare public websites in the region utilizing SSL technology in order to keep all our pages and relevant safe & secure and that is why you can access arab.org through https://arab.org (rather than open http://arab.org as well).
Data sent using HTTPS is secured and provides three key layers of protection:
  • Encryption. Encrypting the exchanged data to keep it secure from eavesdroppers. That means that while the user is browsing a website, nobody can “listen” to their conversations, track their activities across multiple pages or steal their information.
  • Data integrity. Data cannot be modified or corrupted during transfer, intentionally or otherwise, without being detected.
  • Authentication: Proves that your users communicate with the intended website. It protects against man-in-the-middle attacks and builds user trust, which translates into other business benefits.

Remember to please enable cookies on your browser in order to donate through arab.org.

Don’t forget, many features do not require logging-in so you can rest assured that your privacy is not only respected (which it is) but also your identity is not even requested.

You can read more about our Privacy Policy within the legal information page.

You can click once a day per cause. Since we have 5 causes, you can click 5 times per day in total for causes!

The new calendar day starts at midnight GMT+2. Our current server date & time is November 20th, 2017 9:24 am.

To allow everyone to be able to make a donation, we limit the number of donations you can make per day.

Remember however, that’s 1 click / day / cause – so you can click on all the other causes too and make a bigger impact!

Simple really, every click is LBP 1.00, that is 1 Lebanese Pound. Other sponsors can multiply the effect by sponsoring just the same as part of our socially responsible advertising on our pages.

It may not look like much in the beginning, but imagine what hundreds of thousands and clicks can do! That is the power of scale for good.

You can view the results page of every individual cause which self updates in real-time as the clicks are generated. See Results page of the following causes:

Children

Palestine

Poverty

Refugees

Women

We wanted to work with the most respected, trusted and highly regarded organizations in their respective fields and as such, we have opted to focus first our contributions to United Nations’ agencies as we believe we can do great things together. These agencies have a tested system of checks and balances to ensure proper use of funds, including regular internal and external audits and publish annual reports about how the money how was spent. Further, these agencies have their staff conduct regular field visits to monitor spending and progress of the projects funded. We always urge our beneficiaries to focus on the Arab World, however that remains at their discretion for the time being. We hope to sign an MOU with each of them to ensure to channel the funds we generate together to the Arab World. Find out who we support.
We are supporting only United Nations’ Agencies as we believe they have the furthest reach, integrity and depth into causes which are considered most important. All the organizations listed on arab.org are given direct access to the performance of arab.org. This allows them not only the reassurance that every single fund goes directly to them but also gives them access to real time reporting as the funds are being generated by your kind clicks. All monies created by your clicking is then aggregated and sent quarterly to the relevant organizations. You will also notice testimonials scattered throughout the site.

Quarterly proof of payments appear under the buttons for each cause, look out for Verify or this icon with associated thank you notes from the relevant organizations of the associated causes.

Mr. Jamal Kotb, the former Director of the Fatwa Committee and former Al-Azhar Al-Sharif says there is nothing wrong in such donations, or such types of charitable giving, as these donations are a reward for the work one has done, and are therefore Halal.

In cases where not enough sponsors are available, we take the initiative ourselves and contribute from ourselves in the form of support-sponsor an organization on our behalf. To identify such supported-sponsors, lookout for the following:
